Custom sorting in App Drawer

Sorting folders and apps in custom way, like TouchWiz. Still allow the option to sort alphabetically and folders first, but make a custom sorting in both App Drawer and inside folders in App Drawer.

        Hi guys! Beautifil launcher! But this request has 8,600+ votes since 2012 and there's still nothing?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It is a basic feature, Nova Launcher. Why would you contuine to refuse these thousands of requests. Stupid me, I thought this would be a obvious include in the latest uopdate. I paid for this launcher then I deleted it because of this reason. Must be ran by the government?

        If you developers can add some stupid new Android N features then you should be able to add a simple feature like this. What is wrong with you guys?

        @nico I understand what you're saying and it makes sense. But it doesn't make sense when the developer add some other features seeing in the latest!!! android version but not such a needed feature.

      • Stefanos DagStefanos Dag commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        this is the most wanted feature for me. This, and the possibility to have free spots in the app drawer in every window.

        Something that nova dev said in google+ "So here's how it works. Just because something is requested doesn't mean we(TeslaCoilSW/Nova Launcher) instantly implement the feature. 

        We base Nova Launcher heavily on Launcher3/Google Now Launcher and do a lot of the things they do within Nova Launcher. 

        Yes, we do things they don't do and they do things we don't do for various reasons. 

        Some things also happen to be OS specific. For example, the Marshmallow animation can only be used on devices running Marshmallow and not lower Android versions.

        With that said, we didn't create this section just to put it on ignore so we can forget about feature requests. We happen to look at http://feedback.novalauncher.com quite regularly. But again, just because it's been requested 8,000+ times doesn't mean we're going to add it. It also doesn't mean that we're not going to add it.

        As far as the sort feature within the app drawer, it's possible that's coming in the future and I'm not saying that just to make people happy. 

        But that doesn't mean it's going to be in beta-7, beta-8 or even in 4.3 final. It's a ton of code and work and for those that don't know Kevin does all of this by himself. I answer emails and stuff like that so I don't code or help in that area. 

        While I understand it's frustrating to see a feature request with 8,000+ votes over several years and it still not be implemented. But at the same time, Kevin does this by himself and surely the features that are within Nova Launcher currently are more than most launchers have.

        We do our best to keep the app updated on a very regular basis and in a timely manner. 

        Hopefully this helps everyone here understand how it all works and trust me, Kevin works on Nova Launcher day in and day out, as well as TeslaUnread for that matter." (somebody requested a animation in desktop)

        It is a BASIC feature and I wonder why Nova Launcher still haven't this, I bought this launcher then I deleted it because of this reason

      • MicMic commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        @Giovanni Hernandez What we want is customer sorting instead of other sorting method!!!!! Why I need to arrange the folder to desktop? If I put all the things to desktop, why do I still need the app drawer? You stupid idiot!

      • 柯呈曄柯呈曄 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        我已經建議這個功能超過30次了,NOVA Launcher還是沒有增加這個功能!!!

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Sorry! Custom sorting in App Drawer is too hard. So they won't care about this suggest.

      • KKKK commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Just wanted to add my voice to the numerous people requesting this feature. I can't imagine it requiring significant re-engineering so I'm assuming its only been ignored due to being on low priority. If that's the case I hope you guys will reconsider.

      • ZegondZegond commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Come on... Each time nova gets an update, I check to see if this feature is added and I get dissapointed All the time... Who needs night mode... Who needs new ui...Who even asked for these???!!!! When this featured is the most requested one for "years" now. Custom app sorting is the upmost requirement of usability, specially for pro users who get used to the position of their apps. I like nova, but I hate using it. I'm happy that I didnt waste my money on a prime. Buying apex pro was the best choice I've made in years, and I'm not coming back to nova unless you add this feature

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please just add this feature already. This is ridiculous that this isn't added yet.

      • Giovanni HernandezGiovanni Hernandez commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        You can already custom sort or rearrange a folder.
        You already can sort by recently downloaded.

        I don't understand why everyone is going crazy over custom sorting the app draw.

        When you drag and drop app to your desktop don't you custom sort it.?

        I have 3 desk tops. One for my entertainment/remotes another for everything else.

        And another keept nice an clean. With just a clock/weather widget.

        The alternative I guess, most of us are using is Apex Launcher, it has all the basic feature needed.
